Tanks were a major part of World War II. Many countries had their own tanks which they used in different strategies during the war. These vehicles were invented long before there was the technology of World War II. The Germans were known for their heavy class tanks, while the Americans were recognized for their medium Sherman tanks. The Allied forces would not have won World War II if it were not for their tanks.
World War II is one of the most recognized battles in the history of the world. The battle originated with Germany’s invasion of Poland. This sparked the beginning of the war, though the United States was not yet involved. The U.S. came into the picture after the attack on Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1941. Though Japan was the more “direct opponent”, the United States Army Rangers, Marine Corps., and every other branch of military took on Japan and Germany.
Another very important weapon used in World War II was the rifle. Most infantrymen were defined by their rifles (Slayton 34). To most men, this gun was the most important, due to the fact that it was their main protection against the enemy. Also, they were around their rifle more than any other weapon which gives the soldiers a more comfortable feeling around their rifles.
There is a new kind of tank called DUKW. So what is DUKW? The DUKW was designed by General Motors Corporation during World War II for transporting goods and troops over land and water and for use approaching and crossing beaches. And during the WWI, DUWK help United State a lot. It helped United State to supply the US Army, US Marine Corps and Allied forces. “The United States produced 20,000 DUKWs during World War II. Through lend-lease the British were provided with 2,000 of the trucks” (Encyclopædia Britannica). We can find that DUKW helped US a lot. 20,000 is not a small number, and those 20,000 DUKW supplied, can transport countless resource for their supplied, and what DUKW did in WWII was impossible to ignore, it become one reason that allies can win the WWII.
The first tanks came with the internal combustion engine and caterpillar tracks. These, however, were quite unreliable and broke down very frequently. The naval force devised bigger, stronger ships with bigger guns. Their new and improved submarines were imperative in this war. They aided in the strategy of war of attrition, or breaking the enemy down by attacking its personnel and supplies.[viii]
The use of tanks allowed an attack to be carried out without threat from machine guns or rifle fire, as Richard Haigh, a British tank commander, details in Life in a Tank (Document 7). Thick, metal armor protected the crew of a tank from all but the most powerful artillery shells. Tanks were armed with machine guns to attack exposed enemy infantry and artillery to destroy enemy fortifications. The tank’s use as a purely pragmatic weapon was not as devastating as its effect on the spirit of soldiers defending against armor, German General Hindenburg remarks in his report on the Battle of
The result of World War II was affected by many different factors. One major factor which affected the war was the weapons and artillery used during the war. Since the beginnings of time, weapons have always been around. From swords and knives to nuclear weapons and missiles, weapons have evolved greatly throughout the years. The weapons and artillery used in World War II basically were evolved types of weaponry that were used during World War I (Military History 1).
World War 2 was the most popular war that the United States was ever involved in. 18 million served in the armed forces, 10 million overseas; 25 million workers gave of their pay envelope regularly for war bonds. About 16 million Americans served in World War II from late1941 to 1945. Over 400,000 soldiers did not return. Another 670,000 were wounded on enemies ground. In order for the United States to be successful against the Axis powers, the US economy was forced to turn into a war economy. It started becoming hard to quickly build guns, tanks, ships and ammo for the war effort. The involvement of the United States and the Soviet Union in the war made a successful German military power into a disaster. In 1942 and 1943, the German
First, we will discuss ground vehicle advances. The Jeep was invented in World War Two. It was used as basic transportation for troops. After the war, the Jeep became more popular and was then used as a production vehicle for the public. Tanks of World War One were very primitive and very ineffective. In World War Two, the tank was one of the most important vehicles used. Leading up to World War Two, tanks were made more powerful, faster, lighter, and stronger. Tank warfare was very important in World War Two. All countries involved in the war were producing their own models of tanks. By the end of the war, the Allies had developed a new kind of tank. It had no big guns on it. It was a troop transportation vehicle that was heavily armored. Transportation vehicles were very important in the war. Without transportation, there is no efficient way to move troops. All of these vehicles were very important in the history of war.
World war 2 was extremely horrific because the use of more extreme weapons were put into play which caused a lot more deaths than any other war. In the two wars other than world war two with the second and third most deaths the weapons used were very different than anything used in world war 2. In world war 2 the soldiers used rifles, shotguns, machine guns, tanks, self propelled artillery, self propelled guns/howitzers/mortars,
World War II is the name commonly given to the global conflict of 1939-1945. It is said to be the greatest and most destructive war in world history. The World War II military operations were conducted primarily in Europe but also in Asia, Africa, and the far islands of the Pacific as well. More than 17 million members of the armed forces perished during the conflict. It caused strain on the economic capabilities of the major nations and left many countries on the edge of collapse.
In the overview of the chapter “Treatise on Nomadology-The War Machine” of the book “A Thousand Plateaus” the writer describes how the chess game has been used to represent the state whereas the nomad and smooth allowance relationship has been expounded using the “Go” player. The writer, Deleuze explains how chess and Go are different. According to the text, chess encodes and decodes the spaces within the game whereas Go is different from chess because it territorializes and deterritorializes the spaces. In other words, Deleuze is explaining how the war machine and state tools are way different in their purity. According to the writer, a state is not just a state that is governed by administration officers like chiefs, he views a state as a society that has arms of government at work or rather mechanisms. According to this chapter, “Treatise On Nomadology—The War Machine”, mechanisms are way beyond primitive structures such as the primordial, rhizomatic which are nomadic and arborescent and are majorly based on the organs of power (p. 357-358). This book review explains into details the chapter “Treatise On Nomadology—The War Machine” of the book “A Thousand Plateaus” on various aspects such as the war vs. the state, the war machine rules, how the war machine maintains nomad science and the methods utilized by the writers in
